With specialized delivery and shipment programs that consolidate and distribute cargo throughout both Canada and the United States, advanced international distribution companies provide a catch-all service for the shipping requirements of everyone, be it a straightforward pick-and-drop service or being put in control of completely supervising a supply chain for an entire product and/or brand, no matter the size, shape, or amount of the goods in question.
Most hardware stores, back in the paint section, have what they call an "oops" area. An oops area is where all the custom coloring is done.......sometimes twice. The quart, gallon, and five gallon containers from the employees first attempts at the customers colors are usually reduced price steals. Where else are you going to find five gallons of black 30 year exterior latex enamel for $15.00? Concrete paints, porch and deck polymers, and the always abundant latex varieties are all victims to colorant errors. This is something I do faithfully every time I enter my Home Depot or Orchard Supply Hardware stores. Always seems to be a gallon black or a shade of gray in there all year long. Beware of the paint Nazi who thinks she can tell you how to paint and with what. PVA primer CAN be pigmented.
Private Labels and Brands - Majority of the items being sold by Harbor Freight bear private label store brands or products that are produced by other manufacturers. The products usually have American Sounding brands but are actually made overseas. No need to worry though because the company offers a lifetime warranty for all the hand tools and equipment.
You will want the barrel to be black in order to absorb heat. I used Krylon's Fusion because the barrel I located was blue plastic. I figured Fusion would adhere better, but, truth to tell, any enamel should work as well. I used brush-on green enamel for the platform, but since I used treated wood, even this step is not essential. If you can find a black barrel and don't mind an unpainted platform, knock off $11.75.
While ocean shipping has become an increasingly viable form of shipping, there is something of a threshold in terms of the amount of air freight that can be transported on the water. In terms of efficiency and lower costs, items that fit into the categories of smaller shipments, express shipments, high-value shipments, and time sensitive shipments are still best served by being shipped via air. Air Freight and safe cargo handling is something of a specialty at Zircon Logistics. Using air shipping containers, our excellent logistics management solutions allow us to provide air freight services that are consistently on time and safe. International cargo plans offer top of the line service to national and international ports across the United States, Canada, China and other Asian ports of call.
The best (smoothest) finish should be obtained by applying a good color coat first. After that has dried well you can polish out any irregularities with fine grit sand paper (2000, 3200, something of that order.). If additional coats are needed you can apply them lightly afterwards. I would wait for clear coat until the finish is blemish free. If you are using gloss paint for the color coats make sure that the coats are thoroughly dry between coats. Sometimes that might take a day or two. A trick that a friend uses for his funny car models is to use finger nail polish as it dries very smooth.
